..and welcome from me, I too. I'm new to all of this bike "go-fast-er" stuff, as well. I joined about a week ago. I haven't made up my mind as to a bike frame config, but, kinda lean toward the vintage stuff, like the "tankers". Also, having trouble deciding between the 2 & 4 cycle engines. All of my current 2 wheelers are 2 cycles, so, I know them pretty well.
Your bike looks greats and sense it will offer a number of thrills come next spring.
Yes, these guys have been very helpful.
